The site was first marked out in December for the construction of New Cold Store units, adjacent to the potato packing plant. The site firstly had to be cleared and levelled and the foundations set out. Excavation work then commenced, with workers having to dig down into blue clay.
Following completion of this stage, the bolt boxes were installed and the concrete poured for the foundations. The steel erection went without a hitch and the cladding work was carried out prior to the placing of the concrete floor with drainage connections and external reinforced concrete works, thus completing the majority of the project.
The two cold stores were then fitted out with new chiller units ready in time for this year's potato crop, with additional reinforced concrete work for delivery trucks more recently added to the front of the site.
Located at the heart of a prime salad potato producing area, this facility is committed to providing a fast, cost-effective solution to grading, washing and packing both salad and main crop potatoes.
The plant makes full use of automation, employing robotised handling and palletisation methods for finished packages, to streamline the whole process.
